Spurs Playbook: Wemby, Sochan and death by a thousand cuts

Photos by Cooper Neill/NBAE via Jeremy Sochan makes an impact off-ball with his cutting ability. The San Antonio Spurs have played two-straight games in which their offense really clicked. They eliminated bad turnovers and moved the ball effectively. In Sunday’s win against the Indiana Pacers the Spurs had 33 assists, with each player tallying at least two. It wasn’t just the passing that made the Spurs offense sing, but their off-ball movement as well.

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports The Rockets get their third crack at Victor Wembanyama and the Spurs I hope the San Antonio Spurs win the NBA Draft Lottery.
